ROOM by Emma Donoghue - I don't think this is the kind of book you enjoy reading. It's about a mom and child kept captive in a shed, from the child's point of view. Frightening, too realistic, but definitely thought-provoking.
My Name is Mary Sutter by Robin Oliveira. I loved this book. It takes place during the Civil War and Mary Sutter is a midwife who wants to be a surgeon. Interesting historical fiction with a great story.
